Dear Parents,

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) community includes each and every one of you. Your support is beneficial to the ongoing academic and artistic success of your student, and we join you in this commitment. Together, we dedicate ourselves to providing students with a high-quality art and design educational experience that is second to none. This is why we created this website, as a resource for you to keep informed and to have access to helpful information to assist your student. In addition to this website be sure to join our Parent eNewsletter and our “School of the Art Institute of Chicago Parents” Facebook Group to stay connected, ask questions, and to share with other parents.

We look forward to meeting your students, hearing them share their dreams, and joining them in the excitement of learning at SAIC.

Felice J. Dublon Ph.D. Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs
